Educational Activities

Over the years I have been involved in a range of education subjects, different student populations, institutions, practice and have had diverse roles in doing so. While I started out as a gymnastic coach at 15 years old, i am now mainly focused on education in architecture at university and for professional education. Here I am slowly building up my full teaching portfolio.

Architectural design project 22,5 HEC

Aim: This design studio addresses questions of transformation of the built environment through an emphasis on critical spatial practices and environmental care. It engages with critical environmental and social perspectives, considering nature and culture, the natural and the built environment, human and non-human habitats, social and environmental justice, as interconnected.

Architectural design project 22,5 HEC
Designing spaces for healthcare is one of the most complex and therefore challenging architectural design commissions there is. You must be able to handle intricate design tasks in which many and often conflicting parameters have to be prioritized and weighted with many stakeholders involved. In this processes you are requested to create a high quality architecture coordinating a good patient environment with demands for high-class work conditions, sufficient space for treatment, care logistics, advanced technical systems design etc. Today there is a new awareness of the crucial importance of architectures as being a part of a good healing environment. The building itself has been shown to promote health, reduce time for treatment, decrease medication and help to reduce the stress experienced by patients, their families, and the teams caring for them. All this opens up new possibilities for architecture to be an important part of the healing process instead of just delivering a functional structure where healing takes place.

Architectural design project 22,5 HEC

Students will do a design project on a real problem and site of a building where care will be combined with housing for old people. Either it will be Senior housing, which means forms in between the ordinary housing and the specific housing-units for elderly, including services and space for common activities, or it will be a building where healthcare is more in focus. The dialogue with external persons is vital and also the presentation to different external experts.

  • 2022 lecturer
  • 2021 lecturer
  • 2020 lecturer
  • 2017 Fall – tutor, workshops

The course prepares students for the master’s thesis in architecture. It gives an orientation on theories and methods within the field architecture, with a particular focus on the profile of thesis directions (each direction is a group of faculty members with a shared experitise and thematic) currently available at the Department of Architecture and Civil Engineering. It provides students with the formalities regarding the thesis project, including project plan guidelines, evaluation criteria, academic writing, scheduling, seminars, and final exhibition.
